strategyPricing With my comparative market analysis (CMA), which includes intelligence on homes like yours off, on, and pending in the market, I’ll develop a competitive pricing strategy that signals your home’s value and generates buyer excitement.

COMPARATIVE MARKET ANALYSIS A comparative market analysis, or CMA, is a report that pulls data from the multiple listing service based on buyer and seller activity in your area. I’ll use this intelligence to establish an ideal listing price for your home that’s competitive and appeals to buyers. KEY CMA DATA INCLUDES 1. Comparable properties in your area that recently sold 2. Comparable properties in your area that failed to sell 3. Pending sales in your area 4. Comparable active listings in your area Pricing Right Thanks to the Internet, home buyers are more knowledgeable than ever, with many doing their own comparison research. Which is why intelligent pricing is one of the most critical aspects of a successful sale – no matter how perfect your home is, you’ll miss out on potential buyers if its price doesn’t align with similar properties selling in your market. By considering market factors and local competition, I’ll thoroughly assess your home and optimally price it from the start, so it generates the most activity from real estate agents and buyers.

To get the most out of your home sale – and avoid putting yourself at a disadvantage – you’re going to want an agent who knows how to negotiate. It’s my job to get you the best possible price, and with data from my comparative market analysis (CMA) and my tried-and-tested negotiation techniques, I’ll build a strong case so you get top dollar.
